After you finish your meditation session, how long does it take for you to go from a divine state full of faith and love back to a worldly state full of fear and hatred? For me sometimes, it is instant. As soon as I open my eyes and leave my little corner, my mind is back in its usual state of easy irritability, occult fears, and multiple wants!

This reminds me of water buffaloes back home in rural India. These buffaloes, after getting meticulously washed by their owners in the pond on the outskirts of our little town, would intentionally fall on the way out of the pond and roll around in the mud reversing all the work of their owners!

If we learn to prevent this, then the benefits of meditation will last all-day long.

Here are a few tips I have found helpful.

1. Be mindful of mud bathing all through the day. If you can’t diagnose it, you can’t treat it.

2. Keep a picture of your meditation corner as wallpaper on your smartphone. Every time you look at your smartphone, your conditioned reflex would take your mind back into that divine state of unshakable faith, unconditional love, and boundless enthusiasm.

3. Wear a necklace with an Om or a Jesus Cross and get into the habit of touching it whenever you are under stress.

4. Meditate in the morning for 15 minutes or more per your preference. Then, add two ultra-short sessions, one in the afternoon and one in the evening, 5 minutes each. This will eliminate mud-bathing from your day completely.

If you follow these tips regularly, then the health and spiritual benefits of meditation would last longer and longer such that one day you will experience divine bliss, heavenly joy, and boundless happiness every living moment.

What has been your experience with mud-bathing after meditation? How have you dealt with it?
